A Busy Afternoon

On a wet Saturday afternoon
as the rain comes and goes my|
neighbours are still busy along
our driveway through the puddles.
Surely they want to stay dry.

The new neighbours are still
putting possessions into and out
of their garage packed so full
the door can only just be shut.
They trail to and from with boxes.

My friend arrives, leaves her car
in the driveway by my front door
then has to move it out to allow
other neighbours to drive out.
We walk back from the street.

As we walk back we stand aside
to let a brilliant yellow car pass
to reach my neighbour’s doors
to spill out luggage from family
come to stay as rain pours down.

We are an all weather community.
